Screen time blocking software recommendations?
February 22, 2014 11:54 AM Subscribe
In our family, the children may earn screen time each day by doing physical activity. Then they start playing on the computer. It would be helpful to have a program that just turns off the computer entirely when the amount of time specified had elapsed. Because currently we have the "just one more thing" phenomenon when the time was up. This would put it back on the user to get to a good stopping place by the right time. I could use it myself in many situations, too.

I tried searching around and what I could find was parental blocking software that limits the times people use the computer, but the ones I looked at didn't seem to do it in a way that matches our rules. Any suggestions of software that does what I described, or that does something else that might be compatible with our rules, would be appreciated.
